Poured into a highball glass
Pours a hazy brassy yellow topped off with a thick, bubbly, clingy head with pretty good lacing and retention.
Nose is piney with suggestions of orange rind. Some hints of a resinous quality, but very subtle.
The beer is malty, biscuity and sweet upfront, with the hops slowly but steadily creeping up. Hops are fruity and citrusy; lots of orange rind, with slight floral notes. Finishes slightly piney and resiny with a modest bitterness layered on a rather juicy citrus undercurrent. Quite impressively balanced. The beer maintains a pleasant, soft, mellow sweetness throughout.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation.
Very, very pleasant and drinkable. I get this feeling that I don’t enjoy it as much as before, but it’s still a very good beer. Perhaps this falls more into an easy-drinking, slightly more intense cross-over beers. I'll most definitely be having a lot more of these in the days to come.
Review from October 12:
A: Honey gold with a frothy white head that settled into a nice thin layer over the beer.
S: Very hoppy. Some orange and bitterness. Very rich and pleasant.
T: Slight malts and sweetness followed by an explosion of bright hop flavours. There’s some bitterness and citrus (orange peel) that really complements the strong hop flavours in the beer. The aftertaste is mostly a soft piny bitterness with a touch of floral notes that I found a little bit lacking, although this might not be entirely bad. It increases the drinkability of the beer, as having all those hop flavours stick around your mouth might not be all that pleasing.
M: Light to decent with good carbonation.
O: One of my preferred IPAs. A very pleasant and fun beer with a strong, distinct character. Very good if you’re in the mood for some refreshing hop-heavy beer.

3.98/5 rDev +5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
A: Clear golden colour, big frothy white head, good head retention, a lot of lacing;
S: Very strong hop aromas on a sweet base, mostly piny hop aromas;
T: As the smell would suggest the beer delivers a big "hop-festival" with a honey/syrup like sweetness on the palate, a lot of bitterness in the aftertaste, the hops give a floral and piny flavour;
M: Average, yet on the thicker side, medium carbonation;
O: Strong IPA, intense hop flavours with a strong sweetness, perfect if you want a beer with it's focus on the hops.
